SiteTree is a lightweight and feature-loaded solution to enhancing a WordPress website with a Google (Image) Sitemap and a Site Tree (HTML5 Site Map). Developed prioritising user-friendliness, SiteTree is plug-and-play and nearly independent from user input.

What’s New in SiteTree 3

  • Custom post types support.
  • Content types can now be included in the sitemaps directly from the dashboard.
  • Brought back the pinging facility.
  • Ghost Page functionality.

An overview of the major features:

SiteTree Dashboard

Where you can control the enabling of the sitemaps, choose what types of content to include, and have information about the building process and the latest pinging event.

Code-free Customisation

The customisation of the sitemaps starts and ends with a few clicks, and even less typing, on two settings pages that look like the ones you are already familiar with.

Custom Post Types Support

You can include in the sitemaps any kind of content, custom or built-in.

Exclude and Disallow

Posts, pages and custom posts can be excluded from the sitemaps directly from the editor screen of WordPress. And with no more than a tick of a checkbox you can add to the ‘robots.txt’ file generated by WordPress a Disallow rule for each web page excluded from the Google Sitemap.

Automated and Upon-request Pinging

The pinging on request is always at hand when you need it most, thus being the perfect complement to the automatic pinging ability that let SiteTree automatically notify to Google, Bing and Yahoo! of the need to re-crawl the Google Sitemap. And through a dedicated User Interface element, the Pinging Bubble, all the information about the latest pinging event are accessible at any time.

Native Support for the WordPress Super Cache Plugin

SiteTree is able to automatically update the sitemaps even with the WordPress Super Cache plugin doing the “supercaching” of your website.

This is a Ghost Page

When a page is flagged as Ghost Page, SiteTree automatically excludes the page from both sitemaps, prevents the WP Super Cache plugin from caching the page and hides the page from crawlers without showing up its path in the ‘robots.txt’ file.
